If you mean your username/password, those should still be the same though...you should be able to get a password reminder emailed to you if you can't remember it, as long as you're using the same email address (your email address is your username).

The system has changed significantly. Don't use your old ftp account from before May. Here is an updated FAQ about uploading:

It takes a little getting used to the new way!

Set up SmartFTP and followed instructions in the thread you suggested. Worked like a charm, up and running in minutes. Question....some Dead concerts like http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-09-09.aud.unknown.30991.sbeok.flacf
have no "Whole Item" download option, although the whole item can be streamed. Had no trouble downloading it via FTP, but why is it set up this way?

The whole lossless download link may be found to the lefthand side of the page, "Lossless." It will be in zip form, sometimes made "on the fly" so IIRC it's not ftp'able. Even so, many zips are disabled for now so don't be surprised if any given show's Lossless link doesn't work, A FAQ:
